New Ambition

Inspired by Michael King's work on modern prairie gardens, the plant palette here is relatively restrained compared to much of the garden.

In contrast to the free-draining greensand conditions found throughout the rest of the garden, this area has a tendency to become waterlogged for much of the winter. As it was built with spoil from the kitchen extension, the most likely explanation is layers of compaction caused by building machinery. Willows have been planted in an attempt to break through, with the added benefit of providing striking winter interest with their colourful, coppiced stems.
